The red carpet of the MET gala is the most important and luxurious in the world thanks to the outfits of celebrities
The MET gala is one of the most quoted and seen events around the world.
It is her splendid red carpet that captures the media attention for its glamor and ostentation, beyond the main objective of raising funds for the Dress Institute and the annual exhibition of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Walking the carpet is the ideal moment for the stars of the moment to place themselves in the international spotlight and shine with luxurious and extravagant looks from exclusive designers; as well as expensive jewelry, glamorous sneakers and elegant hairstyles.
Many of the stars who parade in front of the cameras tend to stick to the theme of the temporary exhibition that will open the museum and will house it for a full year, so the outfits are often an event and the main attraction.
Here are some of the best and most iconic outfits in the history of the MET Gala.
Lady Gaga, 2019
In 2019, Lady Gaga hosted the exclusive New York event. One of several of her outfits that she wore on her red carpet run was a flowing fuchsia-pink Brandon Maxwell gown.
The A Star is Born star showed off her eccentric fashion sense in a dress with a high neck, full skirt and bows above the waist; she also added a hat of the same fabric, black platform shoes, dark sunglasses, a matching umbrella and exclusive diamond jewelry.
She finished off the look with her short blonde bob styled in deep waves and bangs.
The singer and businesswoman knows how to impress in each public appearance, especially those in which she can bring out her maximum talent in fashion and taste for extravagance.
In 2018, she hit the red carpet in a pope-inspired look from Maison Margiela and Christian Louboutin crystal bowls .
The outfit caused such an impact that fans on social networks and fashion critics crowned her as the best dressed of that edition and one of the best dressed in the history of the MET.
Her ensemble consisted of a short silver strapless dress , as well as a silver coat with pearls and luxurious hand-embroidered beads matching a tall embroidered miter .
Billie Eilish, 2021
The singer of the moment appeared at the 2021 MET Gala dressed in an Oscar de la Renta princess-style dress in peach. Her look, makeup and hair were totally inspired by Marilyn Monroe and the dress she wore to the 1951 Oscars.
Dressed in Givenchy , the singer captured the attention of locals and strangers during the 2015 gala.
Her dress combined a daring yet elegant style with transparencies on the skirt and torso, as well as fine gemstone embroidery throughout the dress, especially on the chest and hips.
She accessorized the look with multi-million dollar jewelry , a high ponytail, and bronze- toned makeup .
Claire Danes, 2016
The actress arrived at the gala with her husband Hugh Dancy dressed in an exclusive design by Zac Posen, which imitated the style and beauty of Cinderella .
The dress consisted of a sky blue princess cut dress with a strapless neckline and draped details on the front of the waist.
One surprise detail that took everyone’s breath away was the way it glowed when the lights went out. Posen ‘s use of technology was in keeping with that year’s theme, ManusXMachina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
Blake Lively, 2018
As a true New York fashion icon , Blake Lively shone on her way through the MET red carpet in 2018, which had the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”, with an elegant and beautiful maxi dress by Atelier Versace in crimson with gold.
The dress was reportedly made over 600 hours of labor by hand. She also wore $2 million worth of jewelry , a halo set over her hairstyle with over 100 carats of diamonds, emerald earrings and her Lorraine Shwartz engagement ring.
